The major S&T objective of the project is the development of improved TBC systems using advanced bonding concepts in combination with additional protective functional coatings. The first specific objective will be to use these developments to provide a significant improvement to state-of-the-art APS coatings and hence provide a cost-effective alternative to EB-PVD. The second objective will be to combine these new concepts with new coating technologies to provide new, advance materials for thermal barrier systems with a capability exceeding the performance of EB-PVD coatings.
